Windows 7: Is there a way to change the values for Quick Launch, from regedit ?

In this case, i could get ride of the Apple button, and replace it with the original one ( smaller )
What do you think ? Would that work ?

I have no idea, I don't know this tool or this theme, you'll have to try it out.
Switching back to the original smaller one will probably work, but if Microsoft is able to make the default large Windows/Start button work, your apple button which is approximately the same size should work too, you just need to find out the technical requirements for this button.

I stopped wasting my time on such vanity and customization tools long ago! ^-^
If you want a Mac look & feel, get a Mac.

Otherwise, stay away from third-party tools that introduce dependencies and maybe even security Trojan horses, that would probably won't work when you upgrade to Windows 8, and that require users to spend too much time to understand and configure.
You probably lose features too: Does your apple button glow when you hover your mouse over it, like the default Windows/Start button does?

IMHO this is wasted knowledge that you are not likely to use at school or work. Unless you are actually a developer for such a tool, there are other Windows or computer customization areas that are much more useful, for instance for performance gains.

Quick Launch Toolbar, any way to change icon top/bottom margins?
When using the Quick Launch Toolbar in Windows 7, there is one big problem: In 'Large Icons' view the top/bottom margins are too large and make the taskbar slightly higher resulting in my normal pinned shortcuts to be aligned to the top of it, which looks very ugly and untidy. Please see image...

MS seem to have decided that their "pin applications to the taskbar" feature is a much better solution than the Quick Launch bar - otherwise surley they would not have annoyed all those who have been using the Quick Launch bar for years by removing it... I am getting used to the new taskbar in...

Quick Launch Bar
I heard that the Quick Launch Bar has been removed in Windows 7. I sure hope that isn't true. Maybe someone will write a third party app to replace it. I use it over a hundred times a day. I would miss it greatly.
